Become a CEO of Your Own Health
Wait until you hear the incredible story behind this powerhouse Lady Boss! Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum knew ALL about nutrition and functional medicine, but not a whole lot about business. She spent nearly five decades making healthcare and education more holistic and innovative. With a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, “Dr. Sandi” specialized in positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mind-body medicine, and served as a teacher and the director of a clinic for Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD). She is a pioneer in her fields, having implemented programs such as the use of neurofeedback with patients and becoming the first-ever psychologist to earn certification through The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM). And then, in her 6th decade - with many assuming all her accomplishments meant she was ready to take time and relax - she instead decided to partner up and start her own company. FMCA (Functional Medicine Coaching Academy) was founded in 2014 by two women whose personal experiences with the conventional healthcare system, both as providers and as patients, drove them to find a better way to be well - a way that listened to and treated the whole self, not just the parts that could be medicated. Listen in to hear how Dr. Sandi’s ability to form strategic partnerships, having a keen eye for execution, and how being a CONSTANT learner has allowed her to take her passion for wellness to new heights. Her journey to high-powered CEO and public figure is both inspiring and fascinating.
